Wich stripe will look better with a Wimbledon White GT/CS?

A Wimbledon white Mustang with a red interior should have a red stripe...What would look best : the red correct stripe or a black stripe eve though it will keep the red interior.

Do you guys think that the red stripe looks good with a Wimbledon white GT/CS or a black stripe will look much better

Even though I love the black stripe on a Wimbledon White GT/CS, I don't believe it would look right on a car with red interior. Go with the red stripe, IMHO.


HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

I have a white w/red stripe CS in my family and I think that it looks great. Joe is right it wouldn't look good with a black stripe and red interior. I have the stripe kits if you need one and I also have the matching 40th anniversary cap to go with it.

Red interior=Red stripe. No doubt about it.

One more vote for the red striping.

I could visualise a black stripe if it had a black vinyl top though.

Wow, tough question. White and Red are my two least favorite colors. I'd probably have to vote for that combination though.

I say Red, although you could always change the interior to say... Black and go with a black stripe.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

I am partial to the black stripe...........but then again my whimbleton white CS has black interior. I am fortunate enough to be on the 2009 calendar for the month of February.


it\'s great to own a 68\' free or die
